.s. government. most informed observers would agree, i think, that as a result of our government counter-terrorism efforts, spanning both the bush and obama administration's, and which having targeted lethal force against known individuals, the u.s.:it is safer today from a terrorist attack launched by al qaeda from overseas. some would say if it is not broke, don't fix it. the problem, however, is that the american public is suspicious of executive power shrouded in secrecy. in the absence of an official picture of what our government is doing and by what authority, many in the public envisioned the worst. they see dark images of civilian and military national security personnel in the basement of the white house, acting as prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner. going down a list of americans deciding for themselves who shall live and who shall die, pursuant to a process and by standards no one understands. our government in speeches given by the attorney general and myself makes official disclosures of large amounts of information about its efforts and the legal basis for those effo
that the government had any role in the financial crisis, it was in failing to regulate adequately either those institutions or the mortgage originators who profited by selling mortgages to people who couldn't afford them. the book traces the influence of this narrative into the specific provisions of the dodd-frank act. i argue in the book that this narrative is false. it was bad history, and it produced worse policy. it is certainly true that the private sector had some role in the financial crisis, but this was relatively minor when compared to the government's effort throughout the clinton and in part of the bush administrations to degrade mortgage standards in order to increase home ownership. this contrary view was never put before the american people in time for its implications to be considered in the debate over dodd-frank. if that debate had occurred, it's unlikely that the dodd-frank act would have been enacted in anything like its current form. now, why did this debate not occur? why was there no competition in ideas on this matter? that is what i'll largely talk about today. for th
. the government of cyprus has brokered a last-ditch $13 billion bailout deal with european officials to stave off the collapse of its banking sector. under the deal, on deposits above approximately $130,000 in the island's main banks will be frozen and used to help pay off the banking sector's debts. in addition, cyprus' second- largest bank will be shut down. an earlier version collapsed last week when tsipras took to the streets to protest and a tax of up to 10% on their life savings. on sunday, fresh protests erupted. on cyprus withre the economist richard wolff after the headlines. and your report says the cia has been supporting a vast expansion in the flow of weapons to syrian rebels fighting president bashar al-assad. the new york times reports the airlift of arms and equipment to the rebels, largely overseen by turkey, has massively increased since early 2012 to include more than 160 flights in jordanian, saudi and qatari planes. u.s. intelligence officers have helped shop for weapons and have vetted rebel groups to decide who gets the arms. the cia's covert backing comes despite the obam
with the current government funding measure now set to expire in less than 10 days. meanwhile, the white house let it be known late last night that president obama will announce today his nomination of assistant attorney general tom perez for the open labor secretary seat on his cabinet. and at the national press club here in washington this morning, republican national committee chairman reice preibus is set to release a report for a plan on how to expand the party in the future. and that's where we want to begin with you this morning in our first 45 minutes on the "washington journal." we want to hear from republican callers, just republican callers today about this report and the recommendations in it. in these first 45 minutes, we'll set up the phone lines for republicans in the eastern and central region at 202-585-3880. in the mountain and pacific region, republicans can call 202-585-3881. you can also catch up with us on all your favorite social media silingtse, on twitter and to ook, or email us journal@c-span.org. i want to take you to the statement yesterday. he was on cbs' "face the na
government that any powerful weapon will be secured and destroyed. tois our response ability determine whether this can be done that ensures arms will not fall into terrorist organizations. i'm encouraged the syrian opposition chose the prime minister for exile yesterday. time is of the essence. there are difficult decisions that must be made in the days and weeks ahead. we continue to push for un security council resolution. do we provide military advisers and training? do we provide direct military assistance? if so, what kind? can assad be pushed to accept any negotiated conflict? the use of chemical weapons -- makes this more pressing. the use of chemical weapons by this regime would be horrific. 70,000 slaughtered syrians is terrific. horrific. the discussions we have in this committee are interesting. the fact that this is hard cannot stop us from acting. you and your colleagues know better than anyone there are no easy answers. inaction is not an option. i look forward to your testimony and i yield back. thank you. >> thank you. three minutes to the chairman of the middle east s
on the pump. we also realize between the state and federal government a lot of us are paying 40-plus cents a gallon to build the road that we're wearing out with the gas we put in. that's a user's fee. when i came here and break this down and asked the question, of tax/user rth of gas fee, 18.3 cents a gallon, $1 of that, how much of that actually goes into roads and bridges? and i'll tell you it adds up like this -- then we reduce it a little bit on this number. three cents out of that dollar went for trails for bike trails, snowmobile trails and that sort of thing. 3%. there was a one time $16 million in one of our appropriation bills to do -- to clean graffiti off of the walls, retaining walls in new jersey. and i thought, can't they get their prisoners out there with a wire brush to do that? and 28% going for environmental arciological -- interest, looking for arrowheads and endangered species. can't somebody pay for that rather than the people driving on the roads? when you add davis-bacon to that, another 20%, 22%, so you have 3% for trails, you have 28% for our achepologicl and env
control over a fractious government? or is it all those things? this is not a discussion rooted in the past. we will not relive the wmd questions. we will not dwell on the mistakes of the coalition authority, and we will not debate the surge. we will look at iraq today and where it is headed. a has been little of that in the 10 years media coverage, even though it is a far more relevant question for policy makers and the public today. with that, because you did not come here to hear me today, that we introduce the plan all. all on the who they are.-- know who they are. you know their contributions to the efforts to stabilize iraq. to my right is ambassador ryan crocker, who is the kissinger senior fellow at the el sity. sal.-- yale univer he has served recently as our ambassador to afghanistan, his long career included ambassadors for iraq as well as our ambassador to pakistan, syria, kuwait, and lebanon. from may to august of 2003, he served as the government's director for the coalition provisional authority in baghdad, and his career in the foreign service included a tour in
personal freedom, smaller and more effective government are the only pretzels that can offer our children the measure of their potential in american centuries. i meant to tell you there is no us or them. the face of the republican party needs to be the face of every american. we need to be the party of inclusion and acceptance. [applause] ours our heritage, and future, and we need to cancel our efforts in those terms. as republicans, we need to be re-acquainted with the idea that relationships that really matter are not made through twitter, or social media, real relationships take time to grow. they begin with a genuine interest in the stories, the hopes, the dreams, any challenges harvard within each of us. when i ran for governor in 1998, a woman-- a complete stranger to me, stood up a town hall meeting and challenge me to help children like hers. i'm sure i said something pleasant in response. it wasn't good enough for murphy. she would not let me up for air. over the next month, i traveled and talked to parents who fear nothing more than having their disabled child outlive them and b
in cyprus in the government are trying to work it so the rich have to pay more, so it's, you know, maybe maybe then the percentage will go down on those under 100,000 and up on those who have more than 100,000 in the bank. what kind of precedence does it set for those with the rights to their own money. lou dobbs from the fox business network. >> it's not like that taxpayers voted for it. they're stealing it, taking it out of their private savings accounts. >> that's right. and makes everybody glad they're in america. because this is a country, what is happening here, is that they're being run over by their corrupt banks, they're being run over by their corrupt government and they're be run over by an exceedingly authortainer european union that was supposed to be the reverse of this. they were supposed to bring all of those nations together, the euro zone, the european union and everybody lives happily ever after. they're behaving in this crisis in such an authortainer manner that it is disgusting. and by the way, the euro itself may be challenged in this. i want to say quickly one thin
, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the clim
of the state legislatures, governor's mansions, and there's a difference between state government and the federal government. the absurdity in a state capital, that we did not have a budget for three years, yet here in washington the senate did not pass a budget for three years and the president just not serious about what americans think is the biggest problem of that country. they do not even have a budget for three years? state government, closer to the people, has to get things done. i used to tell trent lott, the difference between governors and senators is senators talk about doing things and governors do things. there's a lot of truth to democrat governors as well. their party is so committed to washington that you do not see many of these governors who are willing to talk the way republican governors are about how we do a better job at the state level. there's much more bipartisanship. i like to think i had a relative success will governorship, but eight of my eight years of governor, i have a democrat house majority, and seven of my years, i had a democrat senate majority
do not know of a family, i do not know of other units of government that as they're trying to wrestle with this question confine themselves to only looking at one side of the balance sheet. but that's what the house budget does. you know, i was thinking about this approach and this question about deficits not long ago, and it struck me that when i look at myself in a mirror, madam president, i always wish that i was thinner. i always wish i was thinner. but i've never once looked in a mirror and wished i was weaker. an all-cuts approach is like looking in a mirror and wishing your weaker because an all-cuts approach placks yo makes you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing re
in the world, but we will make sure there is a record contrast to the government. across theevealed professions, would the prime minister agree that now is the time to look into nursing and whether we should get back to the patient's bedside? >> i think the right hon. gentleman makes an important point. i do not think we want to see de profession was asian. we have seen huge improvements, but i think we have to get back to making sure the patient care is at the heart of nursing. you cannot be a good nurse without those things, and i think we need to return to those values. >> i do not expect you to go into full details. >> when we must get out of this side chamber of using the word you. you refers to the chair. >> i do not expect the prime minister to know the full details against the background, does he think is fair with a 1% increase while they have been at 5%? >> but as a matter of house authorities. the point i would make is public frozen of 1%,have and we do think that is fair. the extraordinary position is a support at 1% increase for public-sector workers, but they think people on where
by the intelligence agencies of governments who did not support my decision to remove saddam and it is true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong. >> warner: a report released this month put the cost of iraq's reconstruction at more than $60 billion so far. that on top of 1.7 trillion in estimated war costs according to a recent study by brown university. today some baghdad residents spoke of little progress and expressed anger at the united states. >> the americans did not do anything when they came to iraq. they granted freedom to iraq? what freedom are they talking about? >> warner: in washington, president obama issued a statement marking the anniversary saying he joined in paying tribute to all who served and sacrificed in one of our nation's longest wars. earlier i spoke to jane arraf a reporter earlier, i spoke to jane arraf, a reporter for al-jazeera english and the christian science monitor, about today's violence in baghdad and life in post-war iraq. welcome jane. what is known about who or what's behind today's car bombings and suicide attacks? >> well, the finger, judy, is
putting members on the government payroll. little traction has gained despite high-profile controversies. as i mentioned earlier, a saide ago, jesse jackson kim my wife's company work for the campaign? opinion was that yes, she can, unless -- as long as certain things are met. we know jesse jackson pled guilty to misusing thousands of dollars in campaign funds for personal use. he clearly lost -- crossed the line. i think people are starting to think, maybe we should once again revisit what is happening, where is the line was -- with personal use? a few years earlier, there was a lot of scrutiny when the california sensitive -- , his wife'sve company was getting a 50% commission for his campaign. .- 15% commission people got caught up in the larger investigation into the lobbying scandal. he was never formally charged with wrongdoing, but that was an episode where people said earning commissions, is that appropriate? ?ost: what was the end result guest: nothing has changed. it is still legal. the whole compensation system is determined by the member of congress and his employees. or her
$7100. that's for an individual. for a family of four, the cheapest insurance that the government's going to allow you to buy is going to be over $20,000. now, you compare it to what the premiums are now for individuals, it's about $5,000 for an individual, that's the average price of private insurance, so you can just see an average of a little bit over 5,000 to over 7,000, and for a family of four the average right now is a little bit over $14,000. so that'll go up to 20,000. that's just going to happen with these exchanges when they get set up next year. of -- now, so that's the cost of insurance. but you were supposed to pay a fee or fine if you didn't have insurance. for somebody that makes about 50,000, that fine would be about 1600. if you make $100,000, it'd be over $2,000. but the thing is you really won't even have to pay that, even though that's already quite a bit less than the insurance would cost you. and the reason is because in the obamacare bill it's set up so that the irs, basically, will find it impossible to collect the money from anybody. you know, the irs, it
before march 27 and going on recess at the end of this week, to keep the government running otherwise it shuts down. the question, senator durbin, is will the senate pass a cr, a continuing resolution that keeps spending at $984 billion which is what the spending level is of the house cr including the sequester cuts? >> chris, when i left, washington, on thursday we had 99 amendments pending to the continuing resolution. the budget for the federal government. 99 amendments. six of the amendments were on the issue of our relationship with egypt. this is all very important i understand. we have work to be done in just a short period of time. i urge senate colleagues let's get the cr passed. we can do it and do it quickly this coming week. >> chris: direct question will you pass a cr at $984 billion which is the house level that includes the sequester cuts? >> listen we have put together a cr that is acceptable in its dollar terms to the house of representatives and i think we can agree on with them. >> chris: gentlemen, running out of time. i want to ask you each about a question that y
even passed, the senate democrats' proposal leaves more debt and government that never stops growing. after four years, the democrats are unable to identify any real reforms, no tax reform and no entitlement reform and it's not a serious proposal. i stand again in support of the house budget because it's responsible, it's real, it balances in 10 years and it's the last thing from political. and i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from maryland. van vanch you know -- mr. van hollen: you know what's wrong, mr. chairman? it's to pretend to the american people that you can have it all ways. what's wrong is to pretend that you have a budget that's imbalance in 10 years and pretend that you're getting rid all of the affordable care act, getting rid of obamacare. what's wrong is demagogging savings in medicare which we achieved by ending payments to private companies. by demagogging that and using it to balance your budget and say you know what? we didn't use it to balance our budget. that's what people don't like. people trying to have
